While poking around Moroccan Judaism, I wondered about the history of the Holocaust in North Africa. Via Jonathan Edelstein and Martin Kramer (side link), I see that Robert Satloff has done some research. The article is just an overview which ends by seeking to involve Arab Muslims in deeper discussion of their relationship with Judaism, but presents an interesting picture. Understanding the history of anti-Semitism in general would be a good step for the Arab world, just as a means of explaining something about where the Jews are coming from in life.
